I do not know about where you live at but here there is a state park and we take the kids and go on nature trails! But if you are in the SBC area you are about 2 hours from here! Sorry I do not know more!

If you play golf, the Shreveport area is your Mecca.

Other than that, I'm not too sure, since I spent most of my outdoors time playing golf. Coming up in April, my old Kappa Sigma chapter at LSUS will be hosting it's annual See-Saw-a-Thon, which is a charity event that is a lot more fun than it sounds. It's at LSUS, they set up a huge see-saw and camp there all weekend see-sawing, and any passersby are welcome to come hang out, eat some food, see-saw, and of course, make a donation. All donations go to a group called Right-To-Play that builds handicapped accessible playgrounds. You can check out some of RTP's great work at the A.C. Steere playground.

You got bikes? How about hitting some of the back roads and exploring on a cycle. It's great exercise and a lot of fun.

You into water sports? Canoeing or kayaking is also a lot of fun, though it takes a bit more know how and planning than cycling.

I'm living in China now, but when I relocate back to the US in July of 2010 I'm seriously considering LA (Lafayette) because I think the cycling and canoeing opportunites will be fantastic.

Just my 2 cents. :-)

Plan a day to travel north. You don't have to go far to see some beautiful places. Broken Bow Ok. is not far at all from north La. and is a place to see. Go up into Arkansas. In 2.5 hours you can be at the diamond mine. If you find one, it's yours to keep. Our boy found a 1.75 carat diamond. Also, in that same area, there is a beautiful lake (Greeson) and a good trout river. Travel hwy. # 7. It's one of the most scenic roads in Arkansas. And if you really want to have fun and see some beautiful scenery, go to the Buffalo National River in Arkansas, rent a canoe and spend the day floating it. Go to Hot Springs Arkansas. There is a big water park there.Trust me, if you haven't done any of this, you will love it. If you have, then never mind and if you don't, shame on you. LOL

I never even thought about it honestly! That sounds like so much fun though! Where do you recommend?

I believe the Buffalo River in north central Ar is most popular for wwr and/or innertubing.

The Caddo river in Glenwood Arkansas is also good for intertubing. And if you go to Arkansas then check out the diamond mine in Murfreesboro Arkansas. It is cool and you keep all the diamonds you find there. Some people have found like 20 cart diamonds!!
